I posted this on Facebook four years ago today


Eastern Europe, the last part of Europe to become western, will be the only place in the world where the West survives. For a time.

The West is an idea that requires an antithesis: the East.

The First and Second World Wars began and ended in Eastern Europe. Napoleon's downfall was sealed by the Treaty of Bucharest, 1812. I wonder if it it is too much to hope that the EU will end in Eastern Europe.
